DOT Interns are college and university graduates who provide technology, business, and skills training opportunities to people in their own communities.

DOT Interns are recruited from local universities and colleges in the communities where we work. They receive intensive training in facilitation, coaching, mentoring, technology, and communication skills, and are placed in communities they are familiar with to deliver DOT programs.

Our Interns become change agents, mentors, and role models. Because they are delivering DOT programs in communities they are personally familiar with, they are uniquely able to connect with local young people, women, and business owners to ensure that the people who need it most are benefiting from learning experiences that can change their lives.

After completing their 9-month placement, DOT Interns are equipped to enter the workforce as talented, experienced, and in-demand professionals.
